Open in Firefox










August 10, 2021

Webstore Link:


"Open in Firefox" extension opens the current tab or links inside the current tab in the Firefox browser from the right-click context menu, toolbar button, or even left-clicking on a link with and without a modifier. This extension eases the link transferring between the different browsers. There is no need to copy a link from one browser to the OS clipboard and paste it into another browser.

Open a hostname in Firefox
Open a specific URL in Firefox
Open all URLs with a specific keyword in Firefox
Close the tab when a link is transferred (Optional)
Do not block left-click action when a link is transferred (Optional)
Support managed storage to configure the extension from the administration panel

If a Firefox browser is opened, the extension opens the link in a new browser tab. If no open instance of the Firefox browser is detected, a new Firefox window is opened.

Using this extension, you can define custom URLs or hostnames to be directly sent to the Firefox browser from the options page. Also, it is possible to close the source tab when the link transfer is successful. This way for instance you can view a particular host in the Firefox browser, although Chrome is your main browser.

Important Notes:
1. For this extension to open links in the Firefox browser you will need to install a minimal native client. The instruction to install the native client is displayed once a link opening is requested. There are two short video tutorials in the screenshot section for both Windows and Linux or Mac operation systems if you want to see the installation steps of the native client.
2. This extension supports managed storage which means some preferences can be configured by the domain administrator
3. This extension can send links on left-click, a combination of the left-click and a keyboard meta key, and top-level navigation
4. At the moment, there is no version available for Chrome OS.

What has inspired us?

Extore is a team of professionals who are passionate about creating extensions for web browsers. This devotion also gives us opportunity to appreciate work of other people. We get inspired by useful, open source extensions made by developers all over the world. Our strong belief is that one should share helpful add-ons with others. That’s why we’d like to present you our ever-growing list of favourite extensions that have inspired us. Moreover, as you probably have already learned, sometimes struggling for the best brings an end to the good. Talking about add-ons it often turns out that an upgrade is worse then previous version. Also it can become really tricky to get back to the beloved version of your favourite extension. That’s why we’re going to make not only the latest, but all versions of our favourite (and we hope yours too) add-ons available for download.
